Cpl. Gilbert A. Rey

III Marine Expeditionary Force

U.S. Marine Cpl. Gilbert A. Rey looks out of an AAV while coming ashore during water operations aboard Camp Schwab, Okinawa, Japan, on July 18, 2017. The Philippine Marine Corps recently purchased AAVS and are working with U.S. Marines to learn different amphibious procedures – such as hand signaling, egress training, and water operations. This is the first time the Philippine military has trained on an American base. Rey is an Amphibious Assault Vehicle crewman with Combat Assault Battalion, 3rd Marine Division.
